Let’s begin with news and markets – to work up a good appetite, right?
As we told you in advance, expect a rally Wednesday and what shows up? Yes, that’s right – the reason the Bearish Mister sits on his keester.
The BIG wave count is in yellow. Next level is white. Then Green. got it?
As of the close before Turkey, our outlook was still (for the small yellow letters):
As you can see, we just overshot the 50 percent retracement levels and the next higher level is now a (common) .618 Fibonacci retracement. Which implies a 600-point continuation of rally in our market Aggregate work.
However, 50 percent bounces are common, too, so yes, we could turn hard down into Wave 3 (3)(i) any time. Or we can see the “running of the Bears” continue.
No one knows for sure and certain how this will play out – which is what makes investing so similar to gambling in a poorly rigged casino. Bonds keep more bid after less hawkish Fed minutes. About 3-weeks out from an expected 1/2 percent increase but if that changes due to a left field event, then we’re poised to collapse in III 3 (3)(i) down. Which is often the most damaging wave.

Cooking: It is all about caring and careful
menu credit card preparation.
You see, Elaine is smiling because she didn’t have to lift a finger to make Thanksgiving dinner this year.
Just turn Mr. Ure loose on the Internet where I eventually landed on the Kroger’s website.
There (*and at many other stores with delis) you can order a pre-cook Thanksgiving dinner.
Order, show up on “game day” (Wednesday when half of humanity was in checkout lines) and you’ll pay about $80 for a 10-pound fully pre-cooked Butterball with all the fixins.
This is handed over by the deli staff with instructions to carry it by the bottom and then walked through the self-checkout line at the store. Whole thing took about five minutes.
Although everything but the turkey could be done in the microwave, we opted to preheat the oven to 350 and (leaving the pizza stone in) there was plenty of thermal mass to hold the temp when I dropped it to 325 and let everything sit for just under an hour.
I spent the ensuing hour overdoing the red wine a bit. Elaine had her Wicked Orchard hard cider. We watched our consigliere consume coffee throughout.
Truth is, Elaine didn’t get off quite Scott-free. It fell to Princess Nimblefingers to debone the turkey cadaver which will comprise tomorrow’s gastronomical adventure. Yes, that’s right – the annual S.S.T. sandwich edition.
ATR (Around the Ranch)
Pouring down rain today. Which leaves us pondering “The Hobby Shop” workstation, the electronics bench, or playing with 3D printing projects, there are two really enjoyable other projects on the guest projects list.
Our Choice is “Scream Box 101.”
I’ve told you about this before. You employ a soundtrack and “sound sweeten” otherwise normal events. See https://youtu.be/mgAf71Ilgbg for the famous SeaTac Airport gurgling fountain.
Now, see the Amazon Black Friday deal on scream boxes. $19-each.
We are focused on the (fake) parrot who hangs out in the rafters of the Trader Vic’s (tiki) themed dining room here. We’ll likely load a series of different “room mood” tracks into the scream box for this: Maybe a Martin Denny clip from Quiet Village, along with a 20 to 30 second snag of the Gilligan’s Island theme.
Now imagine sitting down on the throne for the (ahem) morning’s business. In process, you reach behind and flush. Now, what manner of creative sound could you install in a scream box for that moment? Explosions? Large belch? A wholly out of context Biden remark? Jack Sparrow line?
You see, it’s the presence of multiple sensory inputs that transforms a simple visual into an experience. Can anyone even imagine a Disney Haunted House without the soundtrack? All readily done at home.
- You have a scream box (motion triggered MP3 player)
- You read our article on snagging YT sound using Audacity. Go back and read UrbanSurvival ShopTalk Sunday: Pirate Radio and Audio Workflows
- You have a *(preferably sick) sense of humor.
There are all kinds of things you can do with one of these. You’re limited only by your creative muse and the sensibilities of your partner/parole officer.
Who needs Meta or Hollywood? You have every right to create and live in your own serious alternate reality – right at home!
Ever see on Youtube the people who have recreated their homes like the interior of the Star Trek setting?
Z’at cool, or what?
UrbanSurvival readers are cut of this “different cloth.” All the money in the world can’t by “cool factor” or just an absurd amount of FUN!!!!
Here… Go get some landscaping ideas, while Ure at it:
Or you can work on a serious home Tiki Bar for the interior:
